Mother Retains Child Custody After Appellate Court Motion is Granted, Staying the Family Court's Decision and Order after Trial.

Posted By The Meyers Law Group, P.C. || 22-Feb-2017

Our client – a mother with residential custody of an 11 year old child – was facing the impending removal of her child from her custody following a trial decision by the Family Court, Suffolk County. If the trial Court's decision was not stayed by the Appellate Division, custody would have transferred from the mother to the father, who had minimal contact with the child in 3 years. She turned to The Meyers Law Group, P.C. for responsive and knowledgeable legal guidance.

Our team of Long Island family law attorneys got right to work. Natasha Meyers filed a motion to stay the Family Court’s decision after trial which essentially asked that the decision and order of the Court be halted until the appeal has been decided.

Through our persistence and experience with complicated child custody cases, we are proud to say that a great result was delivered to our client in December and she was able to spend the holidays with her son. In addition, at the end of January, our client received more favorable news when the motion was granted in her favor and the stay was granted to remain in effect pending the final decision of the appeal. Our law firm is ready to continue our efforts in helping our clients challenge decisions from lower courts that are incorrect.
